If this is the first time you have logged on to CPD manager you will be presented with a screen that asks you to update your profile information and complete the equal opportunities monitoring form. You must complete the equal opportunities form before you can apply for any course. You can also complete this form by going to the My Profile menu and selecting the Update Profile tab.

4. Before applying for a course, ask your line manager for approval. Click the green APPLY button at the right hand side of the page. Tick I have discussed and confirmed this request with my line manager. Ignore the boxes that say Cost Centre and Ledger Line Code.
5. Your course request has been sent to your CPD Coordinator for approval. Once your CPD Coordinator has authorised your request, administration staff will then either confirm, decline or add your request to a waiting list, depending on availability. You will receive an email alerting you when your request has been processed.
6. After you have attended the course you will be asked to complete a course evaluation. Once you have completed this, the course will be added to your Professional Learning record.
